It’s claimed that Clare Marts face the risk of total lockdown, unless every farmer plays their part to make the new system work.

Under level five restrictions, marts in Ennis, Kilrush, Scariff and Kilfenora are able to continue operating, but online only and with strict protocols in place.

A controlled drop-off service is in place for sellers, while buyers will be able to view stock prior to the sale, but only at assigned times.


General Manager of Clare Marts, Martin McNamara says the new system is manageable, if everyone cooperates.
